Hi everyone!! Today I decided to do something a little bit different to talk to you about As the Shadow Rises by Katy Rose Pool! If you remember, last year I read the first book of this epic fantasy trilogy, There will come a darkness, and really enjoyed it. Well the sequel did not disappoint! But, instead of doing a regular review, I decided to make some characters cards because one of the great strengths of this book is its set of unique characters. So here we go (might be spoilery if you haven’t read book one!) 😉
The Last Prophet has been found, yet he sees destruction ahead.
In this sequel to the critically-acclaimed There Will Come a Darkness, kingdoms have begun to fall to a doomsday cult, the magical Graced are being persecuted, and an ancient power threatens to break free. But with the world hurtling toward its prophesized end, Anton’s haunting vision reveals the dangerous beginnings of a plan to stop the Age of Darkness.
As Jude, Keeper of the Order of the Last Light, returns home in disgrace, his quest to aid the Prophet is complicated by his growing feelings for Anton. Meanwhile, the assassin known as the Pale Hand will stop at nothing to find her undead sister before she dies for good, even if it means letting the world burn. And in Nazirah, Hassan, the kingdom-less Prince, forms a risky pact to try to regain his throne. When the forces of light and darkness collide in the City of Mercy, old wounds are reopened, new alliances are tested, and the end of the world begins.
That’s it for these cards, I had fun doing them, let me know what you think, and if you want me to do more!
And to learn more about these characters and their adventures don’t forget to pick up As the Shadows rises!
See you for a cup,
PS: thank you to FierceReads for sending me an eARC of the book 😉
